Before deploying Monitoring Server you must install Message Queuing (formerly known as MSMQ), with Directory Service Integration enabled, on the server running Monitoring Server and each Front End Server from which a Monitoring Server will collect data. Monitoring Server uses Message Queuing to ensure reliability when processing data.

To install Message Queuing by using Server Manager
  1. Log on as a member of the Domain Administrators group to the server that will be running Monitoring Server or the Front End server.

  2. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.

  3. Click Add Features.

  4. Expand Message Queuing, expand Message Queuing Services, and make sure the Message Queuing Server and Directory Service Integration checkboxes are checked.

  5. Click Next, and then click Install.

  6. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click OK to complete the installation.
